I would agree, the patina is just right. As i mentioned before do the small things to get it running and cleaned from top to bottom, interior work and detail.

Itís actually the heater control. Apparently something went wrong with lever in the control in dash and they relocated switch to bottom of dash. One of the cables is also mounted under the dash. Back then they did what they had to I guess.

I think that under-dash "Stereo Magic" contraption is an aftermarket reverb unit to simulate high-fidelity, stereophonic sound. Very vintage Day 2 stuff. Find a knob for it and keep it there.

There wasnít a bumper on car. I have the brackets. Iíve already found a used bumper that will match up to patina of car. Since itís had a tail panel replaced they never drilled the holes and put emblems or trim back on. Iíll be on the hunt for some used ones.
